to go over the fiscal cliff, and was it easier for them to go ahead and just let the tax reductions expire and let the sequester take place? >> and by that are you saying you think you wanted the president to go over the fiscal cliff? >> harry reid. >> and if so, do the republicans get the blame, and do you think the president wants to go over the fiscal cliff? >> you know, republicans and democrats are going to get the blame for this. everybody is going to get the blame because it's a spending problem that has been decades in the making. when you look at the trajectory of how many has been spent in this country, you can go back 50, 60 years and see the articulation of where those dollars have been spent, see how that spending escalated coming through the '70s, back down a little bit with reagan, but not enough, and then, of course, when you reduce the taxes, you need to be reducing that spending, so the blame, there's -- there is plenty of blame to go around. i am really concerned that come january 1 you're going to see the taxes go up on people. you are going to see the obama care

to go over the cliff. the main objective obama had was not a fiscal one, it was political, to follow the victory in november by creating a civil war among republicans over the tax issue, whichs extly at happed. he said the 1 requirement i have for any deal is hiking tax rates. the reason that boehner was not able to do plan b was because it involved breaching the principle, which he did openly and said he was ready to do it. there were conservatives who would not do it. that is not a figure of the party that will be extremely hard to reconcile. if you can not, how you get a deal done before january 1? >> that is essentially t problethe president faced th boehner two years ago. last year. can he deliver? how can you negotiate with someone who cannot deliver on his side? >> you go to people for support, at least three of whom have lost their committee assignments. how can you expect them to come over to your way of thinking? >> they were crowing when john boehner went down, taking some delight, but that was pre- cleared by the leadership. the leadership was with him. this is not a ques

plunge off the fiscal cliff, even if we don't go off the fiscal cliff, the new york post has broken it down this morning and said, remember how -- president obama has been able to say he's lowering everybody's taxes because he put in that payroll holiday and payroll tax holiday. so everybody's taxes for the past two years, the social security tax 6.2 to 4.2%. that expires, sun sets at the end of this and that's not part of the fiscal cliff negotiations. everybody's-- there will be a bite taken out of every single person's paycheck because that holiday is over. >> clayton: yes, 2% we're talking here so it's going to go back to, as alisyn pointed out, that 6.2%, it's currently 4.2%. will they extend this thing? is this part of the negotiations? we don't know, so far it hasn't been, is it going to be put on the table at any point. >> kelly: unlike you, people on capitol hill scratching their heads and saying, what is going on, why haven't we had a common sense agreement bipartisan to get something done and everyone is scratching their heads and wall street is saying we're very uncerta

with the country a week interest ligds off the fiscal cliff "the wall street journal" has a terrific reconstruction of how the talks collapsed. one point president obama reminded john boehner of the election results saying, you're asking me to accept mitt romney's tax plan. why would i do that? the general piece is packed with revealing details. boehner's backup bill dubbed plan b may have failed spectacularly on thursday night, never got to a vote, but t"the daily beast" had its own failure, reported that plan had passed plan b before correcting the error 15 minutes later. hillary clinton did not testify this week the a congressional hearings on the benghazi attack because she's recovering from a concussion suffered after she had fainted. some fox news commentators practically demanded she get a note from her doctor. >> she's suffering from acute benghazi allergy which causes lightheadedness when she hears the word benghazi or is being asked about it. >> how could she get a concussion when she's been ducking everything. this is what i don't understand. makes no sense to me. >> hillary clinton, i g

break. briana keiller joins us from honolulu. hello, briana. is this fiscal cliff deadline getting closer, what do we think will happen as the holidays rolls out here? >> reporter: well, there's one sort of last ditch effort possibility here, don, and that is when the senate reconvenes on the 27th, it's possible that either they could try to pass something and sort of force it on the house or it's possible that they could take a bill that they've already passed back in july with the threshold of those tax hikes being at the $250,000 level and that they could kind of say to the house, okay, now the ball is in your court. you have to deal with this, but it's still very much a possibility, don, that this doesn't work out, that we go over the fiscal cliff, and that was reflected today on the sunday shows from both democrats and republicans. take a listen. >> passing plan b, the other night, would not have changed the outcome. we were going to go over the cliff before. we're going to go over the cliff now because it's what the president wants. you cannot negotiate with someone who does
